Did you expect Speaker to select his enemies as advisors? – Asiedu Nketia quizzes Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu

General Secretary for the opposition NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has hit back at the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu for his accusations against Speaker Alban Bagbin.
Mr. Nketia wondered if the Majority Leader expected the Speaker to appoint his opponents to be his advisors.
Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu in an interview on Sunday, April 4, expressed worry over how Speaker Bagbin has selected many members of the NDC to his office as advisors.
He also expressed displeasure with the selection of Mr Aseidu Nketia as a member of the Parliamentary Service Board.
But according to the NDC General Secretary, the rules governing the land give the Speaker discretion to appoint who he would want to work with, and they must be people he shares similar ideologies with.
“Before, Speaker Bagbin came, what was Parliament? Was it [not] an enclave of NPP? Because the former Speaker was NPP and all the former MPs who should be on the Parliamentary Board were all from NPP leadership.
“I do not want to believe that the workers or the advisors at the time were from CPP. So if they were all NPP at the time and now you have another Speaker, I am wondering if Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was expecting [Speaker] Bagbin to appoint his opponents to advise him,” he stated.
To butress his point, Mr Asiedu Nketia, citing President Akufo-Addo’s appointees on the Council of State claimed not a single nominee is a member of the opposition NDC.
As such, it will be hypocritical on the part of the Parliamentary Affairs Minister to make such assertions against the leader of the Legislature, he believes.
